RUSH: People are asking today, ‘What’s the answer?’
The answer is to elect conservatives who are just as committed to taking back the nation as the left is in destroying it. Social Security is broken and collapsing. They’ve lied about it, they’ve pillaged it, yet they pat themselves on the back! Same as Medicare and Medicaid. These people get to own the benefits but not the destruction. That has to end. Same with education. These people are allowed to own all of the good vibes, all of the love for all these benefits, but they somehow always exempt themselves from the failure and from the destruction, and that must stop. Also, we must cease with this notion that there’s anything other than a liberal Democrat. There are no Blue Dogs. There are no moderate Democrats. If the word begins with a D, it doesn’t need a modifier today. They are all liberal Democrats. Some are just further left than the others but there’s not a’one of them that is in the center, not a’one. For all practical purposes, Pelosi will get them to vote however she wants. They will continue to elect her Speaker, and all this talk about bipartisanship? There was bipartisanship, by the way, in this bill yesterday. You know where it was? In the disagreement. There were 30-some-odd Democrats who voted against it along with all the other Republicans. The bipartisanship in this, if you care about it — and, frankly, I don’t, because it’s a losing proposition for us, but the bipartisanship — existed on the side opposing this.
RUSH: To the phones, to Shirley in Cincinnati. You’re up first today. It’s great to have you on the EIB Network. Hello.
CALLER: Well, it’s a privilege to be here. Thanks to everything you do for our country, Rush.
RUSH: Thank you very much.
CALLER: I just wanted to mention that I was watching the programs yesterday, all the talk-TV stuff.
CALLER: And there was… I believe it was a congressman who was a Democrat, and they asked him a question, wasn’t he concerned that if this passed, even though the people obviously didn’t want it, wasn’t he afraid of losing in November? And his answer was, ‘Well, they can’t possibly maintain their momentum for those six months. As we know, as with everything else, they’ll just get used to it and then it won’t be such a big deal.’ I was appalled.
RUSH: That’s what they’re hoping, and that’s what the media —
CALLER: I know and I certainly hope that everybody does not give up that momentum, that everybody maintains the outrage against what they did last night.
RUSH: Well, it’s going to be tough. This guy had a point about one thing, and that is it is tough to maintain emotional intensity such as it has been for six straight months. I don’t think that’s possible, but I don’t think he’s right that people are going to forget this and just say, ‘Okay, well, it’s here,’ and be comfortable with it. Especially the administration has said that they have to go out now and sell this to people. They’re going to fan out — Obama and others going to fan out — and start explaining to people what this really is. They’re going to keep the subject alive, as will a tremendous number of people keep the subject alive. Don’t worry about November. There are enough people who realize what’s happened here and enough people who realize what it’s going to take to restore this country’s greatness. They’re not going to get comfortable with America being destroyed. It won’t happen.
